O_O I’d forgotten the contents of the beginning of Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and started the audiobook and ohmigosh. So much ohmigosh.
I think I’m the only person I know who’s completely excited to see Step Up Revolution 3D, and that’s easily because I’m the only person I know who saw Step Up 3D in 3D. People, you don’t know have any idea what you missed and what you missed was aMAYzing with really large font — exactly what 3D film should be and has never been in any other 3D film ever so far (until hopefully this next one which I am completely excited to see). I will enjoy it enough for all of you.
- Update, Step Up Revolution 3D was NO Step Up 3D
_I think they tried to push too many gimmicks (pretty much all of which were in the trailers). Where Step Up 3D was effective with simple scenes that really popped in 3D and were simply fun, Step Up Revolution instead built big complicated scenes with bungee cords, bouncing cars, bouncing stilts, trampolines, light shows… And way way too much Miami, bikinis, heavily-breathing bodies touching and lips close; too much, not endearing, not fun; not like the previous Step Up movies. The dance scene with the suits was stunningly beautiful; loved that one. The art gallery scene was very beautiful but didn’t quite make it to incredible for me where I would have expected it.. so many scenes in the previous movies were incredible to me. And the songs weren’t as catchy and the credits weren’t mesmerizing as the last one was. I think I need to see it again to appreciate the dance scenes better, but my impression was that they were too cluttered and gimmicky, where the dancers and their dancing should have stood on their own. : / And the 3D didn’t pop! What happened? The last one was so awesome -_
Where do I get the song Flii Stylz – Rush the Floor ? WHERE?! This is becoming irritating.
Why is the Google Nexus 7 tablet being directly compared to Amazon’s Kindle Fire at cost when Amazon does not charge tax or shipping for its Kindle Fire device?
Touch is not a good show for me. Empathy, people, connections, patterns, compassion, courage.
Video for Pearl and the Beard’s Prodigal Daughter is super cute and beautiful. But it’s not a music video; has no correspondence with any of the sound from the song. Could have easily been accomplished with adjustment of scenes to time with the music; would make it one of the most beautiful music videos ever.

I installed LauncherPro early on and liked it, but found it was just a layer over my existing UI, and wasn’t dramatically better enough to accept the potential decreases in performance and weird flashes caused by having layered UIs. I uninstalled.
I didn’t like Beautiful Widgets. too much going on.
Amazon MP3 I have. I question considering that an essential ap, though.
I tried Dolphin Browser HD, but ended up much happier with Miren Browser.
Multicon Widget I had and loved before the new phone reboot, but I did not bother reinstalling and setting up again on the new phone because the setup and making modifications are a pain in the @$$. It does allow you to lay out your screens more as you want (fit more items in more rows and columns than default allows (default on my phone is four rows of four columns (across five screens that you can flick through); I miss the multicon layout but not the setting up, and I prefer the flexibility of easily moving things around as is possible without relying on it. Also, I tend to use three screens; I leave the end screens empty (I use when I want to add things on the fly).
I have Tasker but I think it may be causing crashes/instability so I uninstalled again.
one of the several good DC Metro apps
Google Buzz makes no sense to me. Every time I remember/think to check it, the unread count goes immediately to 0, and I have no useful idea of what I’ve previously read or not; cannot really flag, save, or categorize things in a manageable way; and I just can’t see how they can have declared Wave a failure while maintaining that Buzz is a useable application. I must be doing it wrong? Help, please?
